B2B companies strive hard to generate sales via websites as most visitors do not share their contact information that helps generate leads. Leadfeeder is a Helsinki-based startup that helps B2B companies use website analytics to generate new leads. It knows who’s visiting the website sans any extra script installation.

Raises €3.1M Series A funding

In a recent development, Leadfeeder has raised €3.1 million in Series A funding. The funding round was led by Dutch growth capital firm Endeit Capital along with participation from Finland-based Vendep Capital and Superhero Capital.

The new capital will be used to develop its AI-powered lead automation tool. Also, it will be used to grow the team focusing on international expansion.

How Leadfeeder helps companies?
